Passionate Pursuit

The need for a passionate pursuit is instilled in all of us, but it is up to us whether we act on it or we push it to the back of our mind. God gives all His children gifts so that we may use them to serve Him, in 2 Timothy 1:6 Paul reminds us to “fan into flame the gift of God”- it is our responsibility to fan that flame. Its our duty as Christians where we direct our passionate pursuit, are we living for the world or for the one that created the world? 1 Corinthians Chapter 12 we see what spiritual gifts are given to each believer so that we can use them and then in return minister to the church. God gives us all a responsibility to find out what each of our gifts are, so that we can better serve the church. When we understand what are gifts are its then time to direct those gifts into a passionate pursuit. If someone knows that they have the gift of healing but does nothing about it what good is it? We need to be in constant prayer about our spiritual gifts because prayer isn’t just us talking to God its an interaction between Father and child. It’s the Father encouraging us and pushing us to do His will. We can ask God to save the world or we can go out and do something about it with God as our pilot always looking at Him for direction. God doesn’t want us sitting by waiting for when “we” are ready, we need to get out there discover the gifts He has given us and find our passionate pursuit! ~Paul

  1. Wonderful message, Paul! The church needs each one of us practicing his gifts to have a healthy body that effectively spreads the love of Jesus to others. God works through us with His power to do amazing things if only we are willing to cooperate with Him. 🙂
